Open Nation is IdeaScale’s annual customer summit.

It is a live, invite-only event that allows top performing IdeaScale administrators and moderators to connect with each other and hear from other innovation management practitioners. Open Nation covers a range of topics and themes, but will specifically cover subjects in (at least) these key areas:

  • Generating engagement in IdeaScale communities
  • How to ensure that your ideas are implemented
  • How to measure innovation ROI (either monetary or intangible)

Attendees at Open Nation will return to their innovation management programs armed with new communications tactics, new tactics to impact innovation culture, and other innovation best practices and will receive a certification for attending all lectures and completing all workshops.
